San Carlos Midcentury Modern Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

 
May 24th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The previous owner of this 1960s modern home covered over the walls of glass with plywood and installed a massive awning at the rear of the house, blocking out most light and connection with the outdoors. The original interior had a maze-like layout starting with a small entry area and moving into too many hallways. In short, the house felt dark and closed-in. Nevertheless the new owners saw the potential in the home, purchased it, and hired Klopf Architecture to help them realize the potential. Today it is an open, light and bright, indoor-outdoor, clean and simple, modernist home for two professionals and their young son.

Located on the 11th floor of the Copan Building, the apartment signed by SuperLimão Studio had as premise to integrate the spaces. The challenge was to create spans in the project, since the existing structure did not allow to transform the apartment into a loft.

The house was designed for a couple. The husband is a college professor at art department. The site is placed on a hillside with a sweeping view and a broad slope to the northwest, and faces a mountain to the south. It poses a particular challenge that the orientation of the house and of the main view cannot be the same.

What shape of life can an architect suggest to people in a new town in which apartment complexes will be built? The location is the community living area in Gimpo Newtown. The building will be used for a neighbor hospital and other businesses, and we had an expectation that this building would be an open-space in such dense region.

CBR House in Bío Bío Region, Chile by Cristian Berrios Architects

 
May 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cristian Berrios Architects

The restriction of a square plant (9 x 9 meters) is the context in which the project is developed. A central aisle with a dimension between enclosure and corridor defines the spatial structure that organizes this house. In its geometric center a skylight floods of light both levels crossing the floor of the second level. For this soil, flat steel bars were used, reminiscent of the urban gratings that conceal the installations and an unknown surface of the cities. On this structure, in the center of the dwelling, the experience can be of weightlessness or vertigo, the sensation is tensioned with the skylight that accompanies in concordance.

Epée de bois Nursery in Paris, France by h2o architectes

 
May 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: h2o architectes

This project consists in the extension and rehabilitation of a nursery for 24 children. The nursery is located on a very tight and narrow site, almost hidden by several very different looking buildings.

The extension of the nursery is an opportunity to give new coherence to the group of buildings. It is set against an existing building at the end of the courtyard, and is given a distinct visual identity as a clear, readable volume. A light exterior perforated shell protects the glass building which houses the nursery spaces and play terraces on the first level.

Mashambas Skyscraper in Manyoni, Tanzania by Ggrupa

An area of cultivated ground; a plot of land, a small subsistence farm for growing crops and fruit-bearing trees, often including the dwelling of the farmer.

Over the last 30 years, worldwide absolute poverty has fallen sharply (from about 40% to under 20%). But in African countries, the percentage has barely fallen. Still today, over 40% of people living in sub-Saharan Africa live in absolute poverty. More than half of them have something in common: they’re small farmers.
